Started running....I think I'm addicted.

Is it love or is it a fad?

Hello everyone, been lurking on here for a while picking up some bits and pieces of advice but hit a bit of a milestone today and not sure what to do.

Been running for about a month now, started over Christmas mainly run/walking about 5min/1min but today did my first non stop 5k in 29:10 today (very slow but had the best runners high!).

My question is do I carry on focusing on getting more slow steady miles under my belt or start adding some variety into my training? I started running after buying a bike and entering a duathlon while hungover after my 30th birthday. Thats in march and I want to make the most of the time between now and then.

Where is everyone? Still running?

I am five weeks away from my first Half and very excited! Had a bit of a blip after a solo 8 miler a couple of weeks ago (bit dehydrated, poor diet the day before), but now have a running buddy who has signed up to run it with me. We ran 9 miles last night, and it was a good run, so my confidence has been helped a lot.
